In this paper, the integrated drive for three-phase switched reluctance motor (3-phase SRM) is proposed, and it combines a battery-powered bidirectional DC/DC converter to provide bidirectional power transfer in practice. In the proposed integrated drive, there is no relay to reconfigure and no need to add separate charging/discharging units and circuit components. Only one physical current sensor is used to sense the switch-bus current to provide all current signals not only for SRM driving, but also grid-to-vehicle(G2V)/vehicle-to-grid(V2G) functions at a standstill. The proposed integrated drive and its control are implemented and demonstrated by the provided results.
